Study Abroad

Studying abroad offers a unique opportunity for exposure to a different cultural and academic environment. Currently, nearly 23 percent of UCL undergraduate students spend time overseas as part of their UCL degree, and over 30 of our undergraduate programmes offer a year or semester abroad as a structured study option.

In spending a semester or year abroad during your time as a UCL student, you have the opportunity to acquire and develop language skills and cultural awareness, expand your knowledge base by accessing new subject areas, diversify your learning experience in a new academic environment. In today’s increasingly global job market, a study abroad placement on your CV will help you stand out from the crowd;

To help support you in your overseas adventure, we have a dedicated Study Abroad Team who provide advice and assistance before, during and after your time abroad. From making your application, right through to your return to UCL, we are on hand with great information, resources and events to help you feel prepared to undertake a brand new challenge and become a truly global citizen.
